Hoda Muthana Biography
Hoda Muthana was born in October 1994 in Hackensack, New Jersey. She is a 24-year-old Alabama woman who was studying business at a local college and fled from her family and the United States to join ISIS in Syria is hoping to return to America with her 18-month-old son.

Hoda Muthana Husband
Rahman was killed in the town of Kobanî, and soon afterward Muthana angrily tweeted: “Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping! Go on drive-bys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day … Kill them.”
For many months in 2015, her Twitter feed was full of bloodcurdling incitement, and she says she remained a zealot until the following year. She now says her account was taken over by others.
Hoda Muthana Second married
Soon after, she married her second husband, a Tunisian fighter, with whom she had her son, Adam. Her husband was killed in Mosul, and Muthana retreated with dozens of other women deeper into Isis’s ever-shrinking land, where she briefly married a Syrian fighter last year.
Muthana says her family in Alabama were deeply conservative and placed restrictions on her movements and interactions, factors she claims contributed to her radicalization. “You want to go out with your friends and I didn’t get any of that. I turned to my religion and went in too hard. I was self-taught and thought whatever I read, it was right.
“I look back now and I think I was very arrogant. Now I’m worried about my son’s future. In the end, I didn’t have many friends left, because the more I talked about the oppression of Isis the more I lost friends. I was brainwashed once and my friends are still brainwashed.”
Six weeks ago, Muthana fled the village of Susa, not far from the current frontline in Baghuz. She said she slept in the desert for two nights with a group of Isis exiles. She was eventually captured by Kurdish forces who transferred her to al-Hawl, where she now mingles with wives and widows of fighters from around the world.
The women cannot leave the camp and are escorted to meetings by armed guards. They have access to food and some aid.
At al-Hawl, grudges from over the past four years have surfaced and new alliances and enmities have formed; the foreign women of the camp fall gang-like into three categories: Russians, Tunisians, and other westerners, camp residents say.
“They [Russians and Tunisians] are making life hell for us,” said a Swedish detainee, Lisa Andersson. “If you go outside the tent without your burqa, or say something to the management, they beat you or your children up. They threaten to burn your tent.”
Andersson’s one-year-old daughter died in the camp a month ago, and she blames her death on substandard healthcare. Emphasising the desperate plight of some of the Isis children, Khadija Suleiman, a South African woman, has taken two German boys into her care. Their father is detained in a separate camp and their mother is dead. She is also caring for a French orphan.
Muthana describes her experience with Isis as “very mind-blowing”. “It was like a movie. You read one book and think you know everything. I’m really traumatized by my experience. We starved and we literally ate grass.”
Donald Trump on Sunday urged western countries to repatriate captured fighters, appearing to ignore the fact that his administration has shown little enthusiasm for doing so.
“The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany, and other European allies to take back over 800 Isis fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial,” the US president said. “The caliphate is ready to fall. The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them …”
Muthana said she had not been in contact with US officials since her capture. “I would tell them please forgive me for being so ignorant, and I was really young and ignorant and I was 19 when I decided to leave. I believe that America gives second chances. I want to return and I’ll never come back to the Middle East. America can take my passport and I wouldn’t mind.”
ISIS Bride, Hoda Muthana wants to Return to the US
I started getting interested in my deen (religious life) around 2012. I felt like my life was so bland without it. Life has much more meaning when u know why ur here. … I dressed and behaved more modestly. It helped me with my temper and made me a better person overall.
They (her parents) liked the change until they saw me getting ‘jihadi.’ … I literally isolated myself from all my friends and community members the last year I was in America. As I grew closer to my deen, I lost all my friends, I found none in my community that desired to tread the path I was striving for. … People are nice (in Hoover) but they’re all about the world, which I didn’t like.
Muthana’s father, Mohammed, said he spoke to Buzzfeed in hopes it would help other families prevent their children from joining ISIS. He told Buzzfeed, “I want to apologize for what my daughter did.” Mohammed was a diplomat and shortly after that career ended.
Muthana now wants to come home to Alabama, where she was a resident and college student before she decided to run away to join the Islamic Terrorist Group. She now says she fled ISIS and was captured and held by Kurdish troops. Muthama states that she regrets her choice and while conceding she may have to serve time in prison, she nonetheless wishes to return to her home in Alabama. It’s been reported that Muthana was the sole female American at the al-Hawl refugee camp.
Hoda Muthana Not a US Citizen – President Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo Affirms
On February 20th, 2019, President Donald Trump ordered Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to prohibit so-called ISIS bride Hoda Muthana from returning to the U.S. “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” President Trump wrote on a tweet.
Michael Pompeo said in a follow-up tweet that Muthana had no passport and was not a citizen. Pompeo appeared firm in his position and added a cautionary note in a statement posted to the State Department website.
“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States. We continue to strongly advise all U.S. citizens not to travel to Syria.”
